2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Kris Joseph


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-7, 210

School: Syracuse, Senior


Strengths:
  • Tremendous athlete
  • Great off the bounce when attacking the basket
  • Explosive finisher
  • Outstanding body control in the lane
  • Excels in transition
  • Improved three-point shooter
  • Decent mid-range game including pull-up jumper
  • Length helps him as a defender and rebounder



    Weaknesses:
  • Though an improved perimeter shooter, still needs some work on his jumper
  • Relies too much on jump shot
  • Needs to work on his left-hand dribble
  • Man-to-man defense is a question mark since he has played all zone at Syracuse
  • Physicality

    Summary: Joseph's athleticism makes him attractive at the next level and should earn him a spot in the first round of the 2012 NBA Draft. If he can show more consistency with his outside shot, it will only help his stock.

    Player Comparison: Chris Douglas-Roberts. More of a slasher than shooter, CD-R and Joseph have similar games due to their ability to make things happen off the bounce. CD-R does not shoot a lot of triples and while Joseph is an improved outside shooter, he will still need to rely on his ability to attack the hoop to make the most out of his NBA career until he becomes more consistent with his jumper.
